A Lifetime Less Ordinary

Alex Gibson received his Lifetime Achievement Award at HSMAI Ireland event.

We were bursting with pride at this week’s HSMAI Ireland event as Alex Gibson received his Lifetime Achievement Award.

Alex is partner-in-crime to so many of us that his rap sheet runs to dozens of pages (we’ve worked with him at Islandbridge on the Smile Conference, Magic Touch Partners, The Persuaders and at the HSMAI) whilst he also fronts the Media Show, presents the Let’s Talk Tourism podcast and is a former President of HSMAI. Oh, and did we mention that he works full-time at DIT’s School of Hospitality Management & Tourism?

The reaction around the room (standing ovation, if you must know) suggested that we were not alone in our appreciation. Following on from his being named Educator Of The Year earlier in the year by Ireland’s Marketing Institute, it’s clear that Alex has a way with awards.
